Missouri Supreme Court: State can’t charge attorney fees for Sunshine Law requests (Missouri Independent)

Missouri Independent: Missouri Supreme Court: State can’t charge attorney fees for Sunshine Law requests. “In a win for transparency advocates, the Missouri Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that government agencies cannot charge for time attorneys spend reviewing public records that are requested under the state’s Sunshine Law. In a 6-0 decision, the judges ruled that a lower court erred by siding with Gov. Mike Parson in a lawsuit alleging his office improperly redacted records, charged exorbitant fees and knowingly and purposely violated the state’s open records law.”
